Electrical Monitor - - NEWS -

harat Heavy Elec­tri­cals Ltd has an­nounced the com­mis­sion­ing of a 270mw coal-based power pro­ject in Pun­jab. The unit has been com­mis­sioned at the up­com­ing 540 mw (2x270 mw) Goind­wal Sahib coal­fired ther­mal power pro­ject of GVK Power & In­fra Ltd (GVKPIL), lo­cated in the city of Goind­wal Sahib in Tarn Taran district, near Am­rit­sar in Pun­jab.

The se­cond unit of the same pro­ject is also ex­pected to be com­mis­sioned shortly. For the same de­vel­oper, ear­lier this fis­cal, BHEL had com­mis­sioned four hy­dro sets of 82.5-mw each at Alak­nanda hy­dropower pro­ject in Ut­tarak­hand.

Ther­mal sets of 270-mw rat­ing are an in­house im­pro­vi­sa­tion of 210/250-mw sets sup­plied ear­lier by BHEL, which to­day form the back­bone of the In­dian power sec­tor and have been per­form­ing much above the na­tional av­er­age as well as in­ter­na­tional bench­marks.

BBHEL has so far con­tracted 35 sets of 270 mw rat­ing, out of which 10 sets have now been com­mis­sioned. BHEL’s scope of work in the Goind­wal Sahib pro­ject en­vis­aged de­sign, en­gi­neer­ing, man­u­fac­ture, sup­ply, erec­tion and com­mis­sion­ing of steam tur­bines, gen­er­a­tors, boil­ers, as­so­ci­ated aux­il­iaries and elec­tri­cals, be­sides state-ofthe-art con­trols & in­stru­men­ta­tion.

BHEL is cur­rently ex­e­cut­ing electro­mechan­i­cal works for hy­dropower plants at Shah­purkandi (206 mw) and Muk­e­rian (18 mw) in Pun­jab, the PSU en­gi­neer­ing firm said in a re­lease.

Tripura pro­ject: In an in­de­pen­dent de­vel­op­ment, BHEL also com­mis­sioned a 101-mw gas-based com­bined cy­cle power plant on EPC ba­sis in Tripura. The power plant has been com­mis­sioned at Monar­chak, 66 km from Agar­tala city. The or­der for the ad­vanced-class gas tur­binebased 101-mw com­bined cy­cle power plant was placed on BHEL by North East­ern Elec­tric Power Cor­po­ra­tion. The gas tur­bine of 65.4-mw rat­ing was ear­lier com­mis­sioned by BHEL in March 2015. With the com­mis­sion­ing of the 35.6-mw steam tur­bine, BHEL has now com­mis­sioned the 101-mw CCPP. The gas for the pro­ject is be­ing sup­plied from the fields of ONGC. Due to in­fra­struc­ture con­straints in trans­port­ing over di­men­sional con­sign­ments, mul­ti­modal trans­porta­tion was used by BHEL for en­sur­ing safe trans­porta­tion the equip­ment to the site. BHEL’s scope of work in the pro­ject in­cluded sup­ply of gas tur­bine, heat re­cov­ery steam gen­er­a­tor, steam tur­bine, gen­er­a­tors and C&I, in­clud­ing plant civil work.

In the re­cent past, BHEL has con­trib­uted to ca­pac­ity ad­di­tion in the state of Tripura by com­mis­sion­ing two sets of 363-mw each at the gas-based OTPC Pala­tana pro­ject, to­tal­ing 726 mw.
